Department: Academic Transfer and General Education

Academic Transfercourse descriptions

At its root, the role of philosophy is to encourage critical reflection in order to find practical personal and social benefits. Engaging in the philosophical process broadens your perspective, reduces ignorance and enriches your ability to coexist with others who may perceive the world differently. Our Philosophy program addresses both the study of how individuals and groups have formed meaning in the human experience and also the skills for enhancing the critical and creative thinking of individual students.

Courses are offered to meet general education requirements and provide opportunities for academic transfer into baccalaureate programs. Four courses are available:  

  • Introduction to Philosophy
  • Critical and Creative Thinking
  • Comparative Religions  
  • Introduction to Ethics
